Residents of Gaza have joined commemorations marking the 13th anniversary of the death of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.

This is the first time in 10 years that the anniversary of the death of the founder of the Fatah movement has been celebrated in Hamas-controlled Gaza.

Organisers promoted the event as a national day of unity.

Many hope a recent agreement signed by rival parties Fatah and Hamas will end their rivalry.
